Neighborhood: Vaticano - Borgo

If you want to see Vignola's beautiful church, the masterpiece amongst his buildings on an elliptic plan, then you need to enter the Vatican City through the gate of Saint Anna, to the right of which you will find the entrance to the Church of Sant'Anna dei Palafrenieri. The church was built for the confraternity of Palafrenieri during the second half of the 16th century, but was only finished after the death of the architect's son, Giacinto Barozzi. The interior is of modest dimensions, with two side chapels, and is much simpler than the baroque facade by Alessandro Specchi, which was added many years later.
